The Doosan Bears snapped a three-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the KIA Tigers.
Doosan won its final game of the week behind Kwak Bin’s six innings of two-run ball against KIA at Jamsil Stadium on Nov. 11.
Doosan took the lead in the first inning. Jung Soo-bin and Kim Dae-hyun drew back-to-back walks, and with runners on first and third, Yang Yang-ji hit a sacrifice fly to center field to bring home Jung Soo-bin.
Doosan scored two runs in the fourth inning to take the lead for good. Park Kye-beom led off with a walk and Kang Seung-ho followed with a triple up the middle, and Lee Yoo-chan’s grounder to the shortstop with runners on first and third brought home Kang Seung-ho for a 3-0 lead.
Doosan gave up two runs in the fifth inning to Kia’s Park Chan-ho on a double to left field, but held on to the one-run lead for the remainder of the inning to secure the win.
After the game, Doosan head coach Lee Seung-yeop praised the pitching staff for protecting the one-run lead, saying, “Starting pitcher Kwak Bin did his job perfectly by taking charge until the sixth inning, and Lee Young-ha and Hong Gun-hee also pitched well without giving up a hit.”메이저놀이터
At the plate, Jung Soo-bin went 4-for-3, Kim Dae-ki went 4-for-1, Kang Seung-ho went 3-for-1 with one RBI, and Lee Yoo-chan went 3-for-1 with one RBI.
